Opticallimits reviews the RF 50 F/1.8 & 85 F/2 Macro

I guess I can't post the link since they have affiliate links? I didn't read the 85 review but the 50 was a mixed bag. Sharpness wise it was better than I expected, but the bokeh is still awful and saps a lot of the lens appeal. As with the EF version it doesn't really tighten up until F/2.8 which is a shame. Again IMO bumping up the price by $100 to upgrade the STM to the newer + quieter version and add whatever optical elements it needed to be better wide open would ahve been worth it.
